I get paralysed sometimes by my own indecisiveness. It’s a pain in the posterior! I sat down to write this blog over an hour ago and have only just begun! I couldn’t decide what to blog about.
I read some other blogs. Checked Facebook. Read a couple more blogs, maybe they would inspire me? No, OK, back to FB for a quick game of Scramble. Play with the cat. Laugh at her stringful antics. Stare at the blank New Post page. Scramble again…
Finally I decided I was just fed up of this! I want to get this blog post written so I can move on and go to bed and relax.
I hope that in the process of working through the stress and anxiety issues I can fix some other problems along the way! Such as this one. And my procrastination. And untidiness. And a few others…
Hmm. Oh well, it’ll give me something to blog about I suppose!
It’s not as if I’m short of ideas. Just that most of them require a bit too much effort. Like the weekly photo thing. The theme this week is “old”. I’m a medievalist. I have loads of photos of old stuff! And that’s not to mention old trees, ancient rocks, prehistoric standing stones, my Nana who will be 97 in May etc etc…
I shall just pick a random selection of a few old things I expect. Otherwise I could end up spending a whole day selecting – that indecisiveness again. I often just end up picking a few files, choosing appropriate photos from them and stopping when I have 5 or 6 even if there may be others in other files just as good or better. But I make myself stop. It’s not as if I get paid for it! And who knows if the ones I semi-randomly select are better than the ones I might select if I took nine hours? Or even just the same ones!
So I’m trying to learn when to stop dithering and just do!
What about you? Are you decisive or a ditherer? How do you choose stuff?
